Microsoft's Monthly Patch Release Plugs 11 Security Holes


Microsoft Corp. today released software updates to fix at least 11 security holes in various versions of its Windows operating system and other products. Windows users can download the free updates manually from Microsoft Update or via Automatic Updates.

This month's patch batch includes an unscheduled update to remedy two vulnerabilities in Windows Media Player that criminals could use to install software on Windows PCs just by convincing users to open a specially crafted Windows Media Player file. Microsoft added this update at the last minute, not long after "proof-of-concept" code demonstrating how to exploit the flaw was posted online.
